LEWES, Del.– Delaware State Police have arrested two Sussex County men for a car break-in and shooting incident that happened in August.

According to police, the incident happened at around 4 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 21 in the development of the Reserves of Nassau, on the 17000 block of King Philip Way.

Police said a 67-year-old male woke up to the sound of his home's automatic garage door opening.

Troopers said he went downstairs into the garage and found the exterior garage door partially opened. Police said he ducked under the garage door and found two suspects rummaging through his car parked in the driveway.

Police have identified those suspects at Montrell T. Burton, 19, of Rehoboth Beach, and Paris J. Boyer, 24, of Millsboro.

Investigators said Burton had a handgun, pointed it at the 67-year-old victim and forced him to the ground. Police say Burton then shot one round in the victim's direction. The victim was not hit.

According to police, Boyer and Burton left the area in a Hyundai Santa Fe with items taken from the victim's car.

During investigation, troopers said they found four unsecured vehicles in the development that had been entered and property removed.

State police said through this investigation and other investigations involving thefts from unsecured cars, they were able to connect Burton and Boyer to the Reserves at Nassau incident.

Troopers said that on Thursday, Sept. 4, they found Boyer at his home in the 32000 block of Amber Winds Drive and arrested him. Police used a search warrant for his home and found the Hyundai Santa Fe and evidence connecting Boyer to the Reserves at Nassau shooting incident.

On Friday, Sept. 5 police found Burton traveling as a passenger in the Smyrna area. Troopers said they initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle, at which time Burton got out and ran into a nearby marsh area along SR1. He was eventually found and taken into custody.

Burton was charged with first-degree robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited after conviction of a violent felony, carrying a concealed firearm, aggravated menacing, first-degree reckless endangering, third-degree burglary (four counts), theft under $1,500 (four counts) and second-degree conspiracy. Burton was arraigned and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on a $181,000 cash bond.

He was also charged with four counts of third-degree burglary, four counts of theft under $1,500 and second-degree conspiracy. He was arraigned and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $17,000 Secured Bond.

Troopers said they continue to investigate this incident and other incidents involving thefts from unsecured vehicles that have occurred in the Lewes and Rehoboth Beach areas.

  • 'Ghost Pots' Hurting Chesapeake Bay's Blue Crab Population

    'Ghost Pots' Hurting Chesapeake Bay's Blue Crab Population

    Crabbing season is well underway, and that means hundreds of thousands of crab pots are in the Chesapeake Bay catching blue crabs. However, many of those pots can quickly become "ghost" pots, sinking to the bottom of the bay and taking millions of crabs with them. These ghost pots have been a problem in the bay for decades, diminishing the crab population, and potentially costing watermen millions of dollars.

    'Ghost Pots' Hurting Chesapeake Bay's Blue Crab Population

    Crabbing season is well underway, and that means hundreds of thousands of crab pots are in the Chesapeake Bay catching blue crabs.

    Every morning during crabbing season, you can see watermen gathering up their pots, collecting their catch, and putting the pots back in the water. What you cannot see is the problem: pots that have had their lines severed sit on the bay's bottom, sometimes never seen again, along with the crabs inside them.
